WALKTOP™ PRODUCT INFORMATION
- ◄DOES THE WALKTOP™ INCLUDE A TREADMILL?
NO. And that's what's great about the WalkTop™ Treadmill Desk. You can use the WalkTop™ Treadmill Desk with the treadmill you already own, or buy the one you really want. There's no need to buy an expensive or limited function walking treadmill.
- ◄IS THE WALKTOP™ HEAVY?
NO. Making the WalkTop™ one of the most lightweight and compact treadmill desks on the market was one of our major objectives. We wanted anyone to be able to lift and install it safely, all by themselves. We also wanted to make sure we never sacrificed quality or style.
- ◄HOW STURDY AND STABLE IS THE WALKTOP™?
VERY. Once installed, the WalkTop™ is very secure and stable. You should never lean on a treadmill desk, but the desktop is extremely sturdy. Laptops stay in place and there is virtually no vibration. If you are still concerned about vibration, we suggest placing something like a mousepad under your laptop.
- ◄WHY IS THE DESKTOP CLEAR?
The desktop is clear for a number of reasons. The lexan top is both very strong and very light. The clear top makes it easy to see the controls on your treadmill and make adjustments without bending down under the desk! We also think it looks pretty spiffy.
- ◄WILL THE WALKTOP™ WORK AS A STANDING DESK?
YES. Just hit stop on your treadmill! Ok, all joking aside, the WalkTop™ was designed as a treadmill desk however there's nothing stopping you from alternating between walking and standing as your tasks and energy levels change throughout the day.
- ◄CAN I RUN WITH THE WALKTOP™ TREADMILL DESK INSTALLED?
NO. Treadmill desks are intended for walking at slower speeds only. Running with the WalkTop™ installed, or any treadmill desk for that matter, is dangerous.
- ◄CAN I STILL USE MY TREADMILL FOR RUNNING?
YES. That's the beauty of the WalkTop™ Treadmill Desk. It is easy to remove when you want to run and light enough to be done by just one person. Walking treadmills are often very limited and unsuited to running.
- ◄BUT I LOVE TO RUN! WHY WOULD I WANT A TREADMILL DESK?
Many of us at Fitneff love to run too, either outside or on a treadmill. There's no replacement for full cardiovascular workouts, and nothing like the pure joy and stress-release of running outside. Yet we also wanted to find a way to stay active while working at our desks rather than sit all day. There's growing evidence of the negative effects of our sedentary lifestyles, and even those who work out regularly can benefit from sitting less. Want to run? Just remove the WalkTop™ from your treadmill quickly and easily. Many avid runners are surprised how much they enjoy the WalkTop, especially during those times they can't be as active as they'd wish. Its amazing how great you feel just moving while you work!
- ◄IS IT SAFE TO USE THE WALKTOP™ TREADMILL DESK?
As long as you read and follow the instructions carefully. The emergency cord on your treadmill must be used at all times with treadmill desks, particularly if you are walking more quickly. It's a good idea to begin very slowly, and of course to never run or jog while the WalkTop™ is installed.
- ◄ CAN I PUT A FULL-SIZE MONITOR ON THE WALKTOP™?
NO. This would be very dangerous as the WalkTop™ adjusts to height AND incline. We wouldn't want your nice monitor to end up on the floor! We optimized the WalkTop™ for laptops, tablets, and reading materials which allowed us to keep the weight down, the finishing quality high, and the size compact.
